English Seaside Tangy Tartar Sauce for Fish and Chips

10 mins (prep 10)
10 ingredients
8-10 servings
Whitby and Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast of England were the places of inspiration for me with this recipe, they specialise in locally caught fish, perfect for this iconic English dish. Whereas fish and chips are usually only accompanied by salt and vinegar (Malt vinegar please!) when eaten out of newspaper, when eaten in a Fish and Chip Cafe or Restaurant, you are always served this tartar sauce with your meal, tangy and wonderful with the fish especially and a squeeze of lemon. If I close my eyes I can almost imagine the sun on my face and the salty smell in the air, with seagulls wheeling around above, and the smell of that special supper or lunch to follow, after exploring the little cobbled streets. This is a bit of a cheats version as it uses ready made mayonnaise; however, if you do make your own, then please use your own home-made mayo for this recipe, as I often do. Now all you need is a sun hat, a deck chair and plenty of time to do nothing before enjoying your fish supper!
